The thought of a quiet night at Scotch Corner seemed remote,knowing what the volume of traffic is like there. I requested a quiet room and it was very quiet and we both slept well. The staff were extremely helpful and efficient. Excellent service at breakfast with porridge cooked to order. We wanted to use the swimming pool before we left... More

Rooms and service were very good. Staff all friendly and helpful. Especially the breakfast staff ! Enjoyed a very adequate evening meal at the in house restaurant. All in all a very enjoyable over night stay. Even managed a quick dip in the nearby pool.

Visiting family recently at Darlington and usual venue not available so booked in at the Scotch Corner Hotel. Arrived at the hotel well before usual book in time and received the warmest of greetings from Alex, who immediately allocated our room, before the actual key was issued we were informed that due to a impending function a reallocation to a...

Stayed here as an overnight stop on the way up the A1, easy to find just off the motorway, the staff here were extremely helpful and friendly. Ate in the restaurant as we had a discount coupon, it exceeded our expectations, and was very tasty, although without our discount a little expensive. The rooms, recently refurbished rooms were well equipped... More

Really nice clean and friendly, they can't do enough for you, excellent customer service. We ate in the restaurant for the first evening, food was okay, but feel its more of a breakfast eatery not evening, although the menu looks and is good. But as for the stay it's the first place I book when visting family. Also for those... More

So, I did a recce and found the place to be... More

We spoke sbout a disastrous stay at another Holiday Inn at the start of January and Alex assured me that would not be the case here. We were upgrated to... More

Despite a warm and clean room with a desk and plenty of power points for phones and laptops, the hotel is let down by the quality of its room service food. Tired after a long day I chose to 'eat in' and on both nights ordered from the room service menu. The soup tasted like it had been made with... More

Oh dear! What a shambles. The food was awful. Sloppily and unattractively presented. The tables were beautifully prepared, but the whole event was slapdash. I asked for butter for my bread roll ( as part of my starter) and was provided with some sachets of flora. The Steak Diane was tough, the dauphinoise potatoes were horrible. I enjoyed the chicken...

First the room lacked a sofa bed for our daughter, we left for dinner and returned to an executive room - 144 - which was large And very quiet. However we only had. 2 towels, 2 cups and 1 dressing gown for... More
